Description

Pears, almonds and cardamom combine for a dessert that is a perfect welcome to fall.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CRUST:
  • 1-¼ cup Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Sugar
  • ½ cups Unsalted Butter, Diced
  • 4 Tablespoons Ice Water
  • FOR THE FRANGIPANE:
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • 6 teaspoons Unsalted Butter, At Room Temperature
  • ¾ cups Almond Meal
  • 1 Tablespoon Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Almond Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Cardamom, Ground
  • 1 whole Egg
  • FOR ASSEMBLING THE TART:
  • 3 whole Ripe Anjou Pears, Peeled, Halved And Cored
  • ½ cups Apricot Jam
  • 1 teaspoon Cardamom, Ground
  • ¼ cups Almonds, Sliced And Toasted

Preparation

For the crust:
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, salt, sugar and butter. Whiz for 10 seconds or until it resembles coarse meal. Slowly add the ice water through the feed tube with the processor running. Once dough forms a ball, remove from the processor and wrap in plastic wrap. Flatten with the palm of your hand and refrigerate for 1 hour.

For the frangipane:
Combine the sugar and the butter in a medium bowl, stir until creamy and light. Add the rest of the frangipane ingredients and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Remove the pastry from the refrigerator and divide into 6 equal portions.

Press the pastry into six small (4 inch or so) tart tins, pressing it evenly and up the sides. Spread 3-4 tablespoons of the frangipane filling into the bottom of the pastry using the back of a spoon. Press the pear halves into the filling. Place the tarts on a baking sheet and bake for 45-50 minutes until the tarts are golden brown.

Remove from the oven and let the tarts sit for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the apricot jam in the microwave for 1 minute or until it’s soft and runny. Pour the heated jam into a small bowl through a fine strainer and add the cardamom. Stir to combine and brush over the tops of each tart. Sprinkle the circumference of each tart with the almonds. Serve!
